Podcast up and going!

Alright, I've been hard at work recording children's stories (in the public domain) read by volunteers, editing them and then uploading them to our podcast website.

It has been a fantastic experience - I've learned a lot and am still learning. Some recording issues are unsolvable - like, what do you do in a building where EVERY room has a rattling air condition vent (or several) and if you render them useless you'll end up sweating out the volunteer and yourself?

I've found some great, user friendly tools and set-ups and some that aren't as easy but are necessary.

It took me about four months of research (the kind you do here and there and on weekends) .

It's a wonderfully geeky world with great volunteers. We're getting some favorites and eclectic materials recorded - it's great.
